At WACUBO, we've built a reputation of excellence. With keynote speakers like Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Patrick Lencioni, and Jim Collins and lively host cities like San Francisco, Seattle, and Anaheim in our repertoire, WACUBO is uniquely positioned to be the go-to professional development resource for business officers in higher education.

We owe much of our success to the generous support of our business partners. If you are a returning partner, we thank you so much for your continued support. If you are new to WACUBO, we thank you for considering an investment with us as part of your company's marketing plan.

4 Good Reasons to Go WACUBO

  1. Expand your brand. With over 10,000 professionals from 350+ institutions represented among our membership, getting direct access to key decision-makers in the world of higher education has never been easier!

  2. Connect with existing clients. Our event attendees rank this as one of the primary reasons to attend our events. Keep top-of-mind with your customers by being present where they gather.

  3. Stretch your marketing budget. Take advantage of our Power Boost program and with a sponsorship commitment of $35,000 or higher, earn additional exposure opportunities at the WACUBO event of your choice.

  4. Your competition is here. Simply put, can you afford not to be here?

In addition to our Annual Conference, WACUBO’s largest event, which we expect to draw more than 400 participants to Phoenix in 2023, we are proud to offer additional partnership opportunities at our Business Management Institute and Professional Development Workshops—both with their own unique attendee profiles and target markets.

Support the 2023 Service Project

Every year, WACUBO participates in a Service Project in connection with the Annual Conference. Recently, WACUBO re-envisioned its service project to incorporate and encourage the higher education presence while providing a valuable community service to local schools with youth and students who may not have thought higher education was an option available to them. 

The 2023 Service Project information coming soon!
